Jake Gyllenhaal Says He's Over Casual Sex! Did Taylor Swift Tame Him?

Taylor Swift’s new beau Jake Gyllenhaal wasn’t always such an innocent guy!

Jake Gyllenhaal has kept up his squeaky clean image well. Living in Hollywood’s spotlight, the 30-year-old actor and past Oscar nominee has avoided scandal and dated some of Tinsel Town’s biggest names. As far as we know, he was forever faithful to past flames Reese Witherspoon and Kirsten Dunst, but he admits that he’s had his fair share of casual sex!

“I think casual sex some people are into,” he said in a recent interview with the Press Association. “I definitely have been in my life at times.”

Eek! A confession like that is sure to make any girlfriend nervous, but Jake says those days are in his past.

“I think you find other things more important as time goes on,” he said.

Those important things include his current love interest, country mega-star, Taylor Swift. The 21-year-old, who began dating Jake this past fall, is infamous for being intolerant of bad boy behavior and isn’t shy to let the world know about it through her songs. Jake has been on his best behavior, treating Taylor to extravagant dates and tons of attention — proving his days of casual rolls in the hay are gone with the wind.

He DID get one last hurrah re-living some of his playboy ways while filming Love and Other Drugs with Anne Hathaway, but Jake says those commitment issues are soley for the silver screen.

“The movie does start off with the two of them sort of primal and animalistically having sex,” he said. “We decided it was going to be two characters that both really couldn’t be intimate and so we both went to sex as a way of avoiding things.”

As long as Jake keeps being the best boyfriend Taylor’s ever had, we doubt she’ll get upset over him getting hot and heavy in future films!
